Ftouhi stabbed Neville at the Bishop International Airport in Flint Michigan on June 21

The FBI, who has spoken to more than 20 witnesses thus far in their investigation, believe Ftouhi acted alone.

That was the same phrase witnesses say Ftouhi yelled moments before pulling out a large knife and stabbing Lt. Jeff Neville in the neck one week ago at the Flint airport.

The man of tunisian origin, would have attacked a police officer of the airport of Flint, stabbing it in the neck while shouting "Allahu akbar" (Allah is great).

Ftouhi, of Montreal, would be held by U.S. immigration authorities even if he were released on bond in the criminal case, his attorney, Joan Morgan, told U.S. Magistrate Judge Stephanie Dawkins Davis.

FLINT, Mich. (AP) — A Canadian man accused of stabbing an airport police officer in Flint, Michigan, will remain in jail while his case proceeds. His face was partially covered by a mask he was wearing for "unspecified medical reasons", federal court spokesman David Ashenfelter said.

Suspected of stabbing Flint Bishop Airport Police Lt. Jeff Neville in the neck with a large, serrated "Amazon Jungle Survival" knife on Wednesday, June 21, Ftouhi, 49, is detained on a federal criminal complaint of violence at an worldwide airport.

The man charged in a suspected terrorist attack at Flint's airport will spend the Independence Day weekend behind bars.

Ftouhi's next court appearance will be next week.

He also said something to the effect of "You have killed people in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, and we are all going to die", the complaint said. Neville was released from a hospital Monday.
